Sometimes, as a last-ditch effort, Webformix can install a dish in a tree to provide internet service when our standard installation will not acquire the proper signal levels. Installing a dish in a tree adds both cost and complication to the installation. We’re putting a metallic object 80 feet up, into an environment it wasn’t designed for. We do account for all the different ways your connection could be affected by the elements and especially wildlife, and mitigate this risk as much as possible.
Webformix only uses highly qualified arborists who care about your trees just as much as you do. We use steel flex conduit to house the cable going up the tree to protect it from rodents (I’m looking at you, Mr. Squirrel). We use stapling methods that do not fully penetrate the tree bark when attaching the metal conduit up the tree. We limit the impact and stress on the trees we install dishes in as much as possible.
You will also have a hand in the installation process, as a trench with conduit must be dug from the base of the tree we install in to the wall where the wire will enter the home.
Below is both an illustration of proper conduit laying, as well as a more detailed look at the entire process and the costs associated. Feel free to give us a call to go over details!
